Scalp itch, loops and blunt ends
Dreads Hair and Scalp Health
I used to have super itchy scalp all the time for years. I had to force myself not to scratch at it. I would start scratching it without even realizing it. On rare occasion I would overdo it and it would damage my skin enough that it would form small scabs.
My head is rarely itchy now. These are the things I do differently now:
-Cold water rinse of hair, washing with gentle massage of the roots with fingertips, not fingernails. Just enough to exfoliate a little loose skin and oils, not too much rubbing too long.
-whatever method of drying, try not to overdry too quickly the roots.
-use purified water if possible (I have a shower filter to reduce chlorine and flouride and crap in the water). Or use purified water at least for the final roots rinse.
-move to a vegan diet. Eat nuts like walnuts, pecans, almonds, and have green smoothies packed full of nutrition and vitamins and nutrients.
Get a blender and put a lemon, rasberries, like a 1/4 pound of spinach and whatever else like some broccoli and maybe banana or pinapple to sweeten it. Throw in some flax, hemp, or chia seeds too. Blend it all up and enjoy. Your skin takes about 6 months to fully reset so be patient with the changes and you will probably notice a change by then.
